View Full Version : recommendation for calf spine purchase source

07-09-2010, 07:12 AM
Dear Colleagues,

We are in search of a good source to procure cadaveric calf spines. We intend to use these specimens to compare pelvic fixation strength of different fixation methods. Previously, we procured calf spines from a meat processing facility at MN, USA. But we found that they are having difficulty to provide spines including pelvis.

Any suggestion and recommendations would be appreciated.
